mass-transfer method

Method for estimating the actual evaporation from a body of water, assuming it is proportional to the product of wind velocity (perhaps raised to a power less than one), the difference between the saturation vapor pressure at water surface temperature and the vapor pressure of the ambient air, and an empirical mass-transfer coefficient.
